Multi-ethnicity, Racelessness, Indigenismo. These are some terms of identity that have masked the ways that anti-Blackness and ambivalence, if not full resistance to Latin America’s African roots, have evolved in nations across the region. With attention to its historic roots, contemporary manifestations, and present-day movements, these authors offer compelling insight into the ways that race, identity and politics have intersected in Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico. With with Devyn Spence Benson (Antiracism in Cuba: The Unfinished Revolution), Danielle Clealand (The Power of Race in Cuba: Racial Ideology and Black Consciousness During the Revolution), Andrea Queeley (Rescuing Our Roots: The African Anglo-Caribbean Diaspora in Contemporary Cuba), and Milagros Ricourt (The Dominican Racial Imaginary: Surveying the Landscape of Race and Nation in Hispaniola).
